Governor Ned Lamont today announced that he is directing the flag of the State of Connecticut to fly at half-staff in honor of State Representative Ezequiel Santiago (D-Bridgeport), who passed away last night. State flags should be lowered beginning immediately until sunset on the date of interment, which has not yet been determined.
“We were terribly saddened to learn this morning of the sudden passing of Representative Ezequiel Santiago, a man who truly loved public service and his hometown of Bridgeport,” Governor Lamont said. “The State of Connecticut has lost an outstanding advocate, and our hearts are broken today as we mourn his loss. He was a devoted father, fighter for his community, and a dedicated public servant. Our prayers are with his family, friends, and constituents at this difficult time.”
The Office of the Governor will send out a notification when flags should be returned to full-staff.
**When flown at half-staff or half-mast, the U.S. flag should be hoisted first to the peak for an instant and then lowered to the half-staff or half-mast position. The flag should again be raised to the peak before it is lowered for the day.
